Stress and Communication across Cultural Boundaries in the U.S. Location of a Chinese Business

One of the ways in which corporations influence human health occurs when a global corporation brings workers from two or more cultures together in the workplace where they experience the stress of acculturation. Researchers asked workers from two cultures at one international worksite to tell about their work, intercultural communication, thoughts and feelings about intercultural communication, preexisting perspectives on another culture, and stress during intercultural communication. Findings were organized as lists of declarative statements about work and intercultural communication, short narratives about preexisting cultural perspectives, and two more detailed narrative interpretations of worker stress during intercultural communication using the Transactional Model of Stress and Coping. Discussion includes an adaptation of the Transactional Model of Stress and Coping to help workers, researchers and others better understand intercultural communication and stress.
